I bought this book during Big Bad Wolf event last week for just RM8. Tell you what, this book are indeed cool, suitable reading while you waiting for commuter, bus, eating by yourself in Mamak Restaurant. Providing you with simple, but yet funny trivia about politician who failed, corrupt on the worst way. Satirical book to be exact.

Surprisingly it also include some guideline to "corrupt politician to be" how to to corrupt in a professional way. And of course not all information are

This book won't help you become the next LBJ but it is a fun read and contains a ton of anecdotes chronicling the blunders and successes of those creatures we call politicians. The best story in is about the original Cassius Clay from Civil War days. He may be the only person able to give Chuck Norris a run for his money.

If you are an aspiring politician you should probably just peruse this book because it is a fantastic collection of the things which leaders have done wrong. All you have to do

With Trump and Hilary going at it, I thought that I should give this book a read. It is obvious that they've read some of it. Seriously, the book is a collection of lists on various topics and is an easy read that you can pick up and set down without having to worry about keeping track of things.

It was a fun read. Great examples of what to do and what not to do to get elected, keep elected and historical references to keep it interesting. For those who like politics and like having your tongue firmly placed into your cheek, this is a book for you.
